Once upon a time
     A7 chord diagramA7A7
In a nursery rhyme
            D9 chord diagramD9D9
There was a castle with a king
Hiding in a wing
                                                      D9 chord diagramD9D9
'Cause he never went to school to learn a single thing

       G9 chord diagramG9G9
He had scepters and swords
      G9 chord diagramG9G9#5
And a parliament of lords
           C6 chord diagramC6C6
But on the inside he was sad
Egad!
                Caug   F6 chord diagramF6F6
Because he never had a wisdom for numbers

A chord diagramAA wisdom for words

His brain was smaller that a bird's

So the queen of the nation

"To the Missus and the Messers
   Gdim7             G chord diagramGG
The more or lessers
         E chord diagramEE
Bring me all the land's professors"
Then she went to the hair dressers

G7 chord diagramG7G7#     C chord diagramCC
And they came from the east
         A7 chord diagramA7A7
And they came from the south
          D9 chord diagramD9D9                  Bdim chord diagramBdimBdim/F chord diagramFF
From each college they poured knowledge
           D9 chord diagramD9D9
From their brains into his mouth

        Bdim chord diagramBdimBdim
But the king couldn't learn
           E7 chord diagramE7E7
So each professor met their fate
        Bm7b5           E7 chord diagramE7E7
For the queen had their heads removed
    Am chord diagramAmAm                  C7 chord diagramC7C7
And placed upon the gate
And on that date
              C9 chord diagramC9C9
I state their wives all got a note
Their mate was now the late great

A chord diagramAA stranger started in to sing
         C chord diagramCC/G chord diagramGG           E7 chord diagramE7E7
He said "I'm the dirty rascal
        A7 chord diagramA7A7
And I'm here to teach the king"

        D9 chord diagramD9D9
And the queen clutched her jewels
        G7 chord diagramG7G7
For she hated royal fools
         D9 chord diagramD9D9            G7 chord diagramG7G7
But this fool had some rules
            C chord diagramCC                 C7 chord diagramC7C7
They really ought to teach in schools

            Db6 chord diagramDb6Db6        Bb7 chord diagramBb7Bb7
Like you'll be a happy king
         Eb9 chord diagramEb9Eb9     Db6 chord diagramDb6Db6/F chord diagramFF         Gbm chord diagramGbmGbm(maj7)
If you enjoy the things you've got
Gm7b5      Cm7b5        F7 chord diagramF7F7
You should never try to be
            Bbm chord diagramBbmBbm                Db9 chord diagramDb9Db9
The kind of person that you're not

        Gb6 chord diagramGb6Gb6
So they sang and they laughed
        Gdim7
For the king had found a friend
        Db chord diagramDbDb/Ab chord diagramAbAb       B7b5
And they ran onto a rainbow for
    Bb chord diagramBbBb
The story's perfect end

       Ebm7         Edim7
So the moral is you mustn't let
    Db chord diagramDbDb/F chord diagramFF           Bb7 chord diagramBb7Bb7
The outside be the guide
         B7b5           Bb7 chord diagramBb7Bb7
For it's not so cut and dried
Well unless it's Dr. Jekyll
                     Bb7 chord diagramBb7Bb7
Then you better hide
          B chord diagramBB/A chord diagramAA Bb chord diagramBbBb
Petrified

        Ebm7
No, the truth can't be denied
     Ab chord diagramAbAb       Bbm chord diagramBbmBbm  E7 chord diagramE7E7
As I now have testified
Ab chord diagramAbAb       A9 chord diagramA9A9
